The charges come after he denied "striking" Yolanda and alleged that "a family member of [Gigi's] entered our home".

"In an effort to protect that space for [my daughter] I agreed to not contest claims arising from an argument I had with a family member of my partner's who entered our home while my partner was away several weeks ago," he shared.

He continued: "This was and still should be a private matter but it seems for now there is divisiveness and despite my efforts to restore us to a peaceful family environment that will allow for me to co-parent my daughter in a manner in which she deserves, this has been 'leaked' to the press."

According to court documents reported by TMZ, Zayn was at his home on 29 September in Pennsylvania when Yolanda entered the property.

They alleged he "shoved [Yolanda] into a dresser causing mental anguish and physical pain". Zayn denies any physical contact.

The singer also allegedly harassed Gigi, screaming over the phone to her: "Strap on some [expletive] balls and defend your partner against your [expletive] mother in my house."

There was a security guard on hand, and Zayn reportedly screamed: "Get the [expletive] out of my [expletive] house, copper."
